Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a treatable condition that requires not only regular monitoring by a doctor, but the participation of the patient in making sure that the HPV virus does not develop into any of a number of more serious conditions linked to it, including cervical cancer. There are over 100 strains of HPV virus and proper testing is required to identify the strain that is present and to formulate a plan for how to treat HPV virus. No matter what strain you may have, there are things you can do to help manage it.


How to Treat HPV Virus
Step 1
Take your test results from your HPV Virus test and circle the strains that you have. The strains will be identified by number on the test. Write down the strain number on a piece of paper.

Step 2
Locate the strain numbers on an HPV strain chart. Write down the name of the strain next to the number you wrote down on the paper. Strains number 16, 18, 31, 33 and 35 are the only strains currently associated with cervical cancer. Other strains of HPV appear in the form of genital or skin warts. Write down which strains are present, almost all people who test positive for the HPV virus have several strains present.

Step 3
Treat strains of HPV Virus that cause genital or skin warts by applying a topical solution of podofilox 0.5% solution, podophyllum and trichloroacetic acid 80 to 90% as soon as the warts appear. If repeated application of the solution is not successful in reducing or eliminating the wart, see your doctor about freezing them off (cryotherpay) or removing them surgically(British Journal of Dermatology, Vol. 160, Issue 2, p.403-408).

Step 4
See your doctor for close monitoring of your HPV virus if the strains are those linked to cervical cancer. Your doctor may recommend electrocautery or minor surgery to remove the areas infected with the strain.

Step 5
Write down the major stressors in your life. The HPV virus has been shown to inflame in relation to the body's stress levels. Dr.Carolyn Y. Fang, of the Fox Chase Cancer Center, reported in the February issue of Annals of Behavioral Medicine that women with the HPV virus (strain 16) have impaired immunological reactions to stress. Identify areas of stress in your life and seeking to reduce them through reorganizing, meditation, better living or change in lifestyle can help your body to remain focused on the healing process.

Step 6
Add the supplements L-Lysine, B12 and Beta Carotene to your daily diet. Many people with HPV and its related virus, Herpes, are finding that the anti-viral and stress reducing properties of these supplements are helping to contain the virus and speed healing. Initial studies published in volume 59, Issue S23 of the Journal of Cellular Biology and drawn on work done at the Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas, are leading many doctors to support the addition of these supplements to the daily diet of women with the HPV virus.

I'm 65. I've had a total of 5 partners in my life.  I never practised anal sex.  I have never smoked, I have never been overweight, I've never been sedentary, I have always eaten plenty of fruits & vegetables.  Two years ago I was diagnosed with anal rectal cancer & tested positive for HPV 16.  Previous to the diagnosis I had not experienced anything unusual.  No warts, no weight loss, no diarreah, no constipation.  I consulted a dr. when I began having difficulty passing stool & when I saw blood in my stool.  I was treated with radiation & chemeo.  That tumor, which had not spread, disappeared.  Six months later I was again diagnosed with anal rectal cancer, just slightly above where the 1st tumor had appeared. I did not have ANY symptoms this time.  I felt & looked great.   Again, it had not spread.  This time I had surgery and a complete anal rectal amputation.  That was 1 yr ago.  So far I have not had a relapse, but I get checked out every 3 mos.  Again, I feel & look great and have no symptoms, but I can't count on that, as I felt & looked fine the 2nd time I was diagnosed.  
Aside from not really knowing how or why I got this cancer, my question is the flwg:  My Oncologist & Surgeon have treated my tumors, but NO ONE IS TREATING MY HPV VIRUS.  I can't seem to find out much on the internet on what I can do, after battling with anal rectal cancer 2X, to tackle the HPV virus that obviously wants me.  Most of the articles I find, deal with cervical cancer, warts & prevention, & the HPV vaccine.  What about us, the minority, that already have the HPV 16 strain & have been attacked by anal rectal cancer.  How is HPV treated in my case, now.  Where do I get information.  What information can you give me.
Thank you, Ana
